For Sunday the 3rd of June - 9:00am

The things that we hope for in this world can give us big clues about our life with God. For example, when we are thirsty we hope for water, and when we slake our thirst we receive confirmation that this hope is not in vain. Likewise, when we are hungry we hope for food, and when our hunger is satisfied we also receive confirmation that this hope is not in vain. Each human being also has a hope that is deeper that that for food or water, and this is the hope for what is eternal, the hope for God. And only God can satisfy this spiritual hunger and thirst.

This Sunday we will be hearing a reading from the Bible that assures us that through faith in Christ we will share in God’s glory; that we will be come one in love with God and with all of creation. We will be hearing about the way that the Holy Spirit gives us confirmation of this hope as we experience the love of God in our hearts. And we will also be hearing that even our suffering in this world is preparing us to receive the fulfillment of our deepest hopes of life with God.

This Sunday we will be meeting at 9:00am for a service with Holy Communion. Our Sunday school will meet at about 9:45am.

God’s peace,

Fraser Pearce, Pastor
